East Dunbartonshire Council Transportation Group have proposed a new parking and traffic plan for Lenzie. Under the ‘traffic’ heading, Kirkintilloch and Auchinloch Roads, between Gallowhill Road and Crosshill Road will be ‘visually narrowed’ to slow traffic, encouraging use of the Link Road and leading to a quieter and more pleasant village.
A 2-hour ban on off-street parking in a zone around Lenzie Station will be applied to reduce all-day commuter parking, which has been causing increasing problems for residents and businesses. This will be combined with plans to create more off-street parking using identified land. There will be provision for resident parking and other needs.
Detailed plans are given in the Development & Infrastructure Committee June papers. The plans will be set out for public consultation, probably in early August and necessary Traffic Regulation Orders sought thereafter. Extensions to off-street parking will take some time to negotiate and implement and the timescale for completion is given as 18-24 months.
